After all the fanfare around yesterday’s opening matches and all the excitement, a gentle antidote, still around soccer, is an exquisite new book which documents football in Africa, ‘AMEN’ by Jessica Hilltout.The photographs are moving and beautiful, a very aesthetic portrayal of the beautiful game as it is played on the ground and far away from the glitzy stadiums.

This book pays homage to Africa. It is a tribute to the forgotten, to the majority.

All the people who live and will remain in the shadow of the World Cup deserve to have a light shone on them, not just for their passion for the game, but more so for the fundamental energy and enthusiasm that shines through the way they live.’
